Its literally been through hundreds of car washes and NOT the touchless....Id bet my Jeep on it. That is classic car wash damage...auto car washes with the plastic bristle brushes. I see cars like this EVERYDAY! My family and friends own them. Their idea of a clean car is to take it through the local 2 minute auto car wash. Then the car was taken to a body shop for touch up and they decided to use an orbital buffer to TRY to bring out the car wash damage. Classic.....Ive seen my dad details hundreds of cars with that damage.
Everyone knows that all you need to do is wash from the bottom up with Palmolive dish washing liquid, hose it off, let it dry in the sun then slap a coat of Turtle Wax on it, then proceed to enjoy the remaining 12 hours of daylight.

Your response here is stupid. Why would anyone ask you how to wash/wax a jeep when that info is almost folklore on these forums Clearly, being a closet detailer with enough info to be dangerous you are not able think beyond shine and beading. Your comment to me about scratching the shit out of it is really funny considering that is exactly what you wax zealots do several times a year when you touch up those swirls. Something the owner of this Camary will not have to do. By your comment, it is not worth explaining further because you have no real experience to speak of.

I am real glad autogeek has been such a help through the years to you.Clearly, protection of your paint is not high on your priority list, but shine and beading are. That is clear to me by your response here which is fine.Maybe, that is the reason you cannot understand that detailing is far more than making a vehicle shine and bead water for a short time.

No problem with the dish soap for cleaning, and Turtle Wax is no better or worse than any other wax as far as price goes.

Maybe some here will find this interesting:

http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/...-just-lsp.html

Question asked:

Can Swirls be just in the LSP

Response by Mike Phillips on the subject:


I've heard/read people argue back and forth that scratches, shallow scratches at least can be only in the coat of wax. I don't know. If this is true then it would seem a good, slow wipe would move this much wax around enough to re-flow the wax and thus remove the appearance of scratches in the wax layer.

My guess is you're seeing swirls then they are in the paint, not any applied product.


This guy you seek knowledge from has no clue on this subject, but what he guesses is right, and I am simple minded. That is funny!!!!! This guy has been in this business for how long, and this thought has never occurred to him till now? Really?

Well, I have spent 20 years in this business, and I do not have to guess because I took the time to find out for myself, and not accept opinions from people who guess.

It's his hypotheses. He isn't a scientist. Just a detailer who has made a name for himself. He doesn't have time to devote hours into researching stupid stuff like if scratches are in the LSP. I myself find it extremely hard to think it's just in the LSP. If they are visible after apply a wax/sealant then you either: 1. Didn't prep the car very well. Or 2. You didn't buff off all the product.

Autogeek is a terrific place to gain knowledge from, as there are MANY knowledgeable individuals that frequent there. It's not a one man operation, but an entire community of expert ideas to learn from.

I am curious, you eluded to the fact that you have been banned by numerous forums because of Wax zealots...or something like that. As shocking as you being banned might seem, how many forums have you been banned from?
My guess? You have lost count.
How many forums have you been banned from again?
Simple question.

Here is a simple answer: who cares but you. Clearly, you are so high on what Collinite does you will continue ask questions like this to show everyone here how much you know about detailing which is not much.Please I have no real interest to descend into a insult exchange with you, so go do your own post on the wonders of Collinite. It seems strange how people on forums complain I ruin their posts, but guys like you have no problem doing it to mine .
